Attraction advice.

We will be here on a cruise in late September. Are there any attractions close to the pier that I can either walk to or taxi that are a must see. We are very active early 20s males and walking or jogging it's not a problem at all. We love everything to do with outdoors and adventure but are open to pretty much anything as long as it's safe. Thank you for your advice.

Is SJ a port of call or are you departing from SJ?

At least get to see Old San Juan forts. If you have more than an afternoon here we can give you more ideas.

So then it doesn't need to be close to the pier. How long precruise are you staying, where are you staying, and which cruise you are taking ( there are 2 piers)?

Basically, it all depends on how much time you'll have. If you arrive on the same day your ship sails, you may not have enough time to see much as the cruise check-in lines can be very long and time consuming.

That being said, you may be able to see the Old San Juan, which is right across the street from the Carnival pier (used mostly by Carnival ships), and about 10 minutes taxi ride from the PanAm pier (used by Royal Caribbean and Celebrity ships). This pier is accessible only by car.

If you happen to arrive on the day(s) prior to your cruise, you can also consider visiting the rainforest and the bio bay on the east side of the island, which is a 45 minutes car ride.

We were there 2 years ago and really enjoyed a Segway tour of Old San Juan and the fort. I think it was 2-3 hours total and the Segway guide provided tour at fort too.
